You Really Shouldnt' Be Doing That

This is Blanche.  She is a gold laced wyandotte hen.

Blanche is roosting for the night but not where she should be roosting.  You see, this is the nesting box and hens should be discouraged from roosting on or near the nesting boxes.  Why you ask?

Because they poop all night long and the nesting boxes turn into a toilet!  Every morning I have to scoop poop out of the boxes so they can lay their eggs.  That's after I've already scooped litter boxes in the house and scooping poop from under the "real" perching place.

I wonder how you toilet train a chicken?
